Gendering new managerialism

Ball, Kirstie (2004). Gendering new managerialism. In: Thomas, R; Helms-Mills, J and Mills, A eds. Identity politics at work: resisting gender, gendering resistance. Routledge studies in management, organizations and society. London, UK: Routledge, pp. 85–104.



This book represents the coming together of two key debates within organization studies: theorizing on gender and ways of understanding resistance. These debates have been given renewed vigour with the 'postmodern turn' in organization studies and feminist theory. Fusing these two literatures together offers a far deeper understanding of the issues of power, subjectivity and agency.

Representing a growing interest in the contributions that feminist theorizing can offer to the study of organizations, this book focuses on issues of gender and resistance in organizations and, in particular, presents theorising which attends to the dualistic debate of compliance versus resistance to offer more generative understandings of reistance.
